t r u t h o u t – Bill Moyers | The Delusional Is No Longer Marginal
The news is not good these days. I can tell you, though, that as a journalist I know the news is never the end of the story. The news can be the truth that sets us free – not only to feel but to fight for the future we want. And the will to fight is the antidote to despair, the cure for cynicism, and the answer to those faces looking back at me from those photographs on my desk. What we need is what the ancient Israelites called hochma – the science of the heart … the capacity to see, to feel and then to act as if the future depended on you.
